Couple wants Nisky to OK fowl play

Town Attorney Peter Scagnelli said if the Helms wanted to put forward an amendment to the town's R3 Resident District to allow for chickens to be held on a property that the change could be a long process.

"They are not filing a paper and in a couple of days and get an answer," said Scagnelli. "They would have to make a formal request to the Town Board that such a change be made to the zoning ordinance."

In the meantime, Helm said she is encouraging residents to continue writing Town Board officials in support of her cause. Also, a Facebook page has been created under the name "Niskayuna Chickens" to offer updates on the process.""
